Antique French bisque head doll made by Rabery & Delphieu ca. 1880-1899. The bisque heads for Rabery & Delphieu dolls were produced mainly by Francois Gaultier.
The doll stands ca. 21" (54 cm) tall. Her bisque head is free of damage or repair, no cracks, chips or restoration. The head is marked "R 2 D". Her only issue is a small "beauty mark" above her left eyebrow, which occurred at the time of firing. In my opinion it is adding a dose of personality to the doll. Anyway it can be easily hidden under her bangs.
She has French fixed glass eyes with upper and lower painted lashes. An open mouth with teeth. Pierced ears with earrings. A cork pate. Original blonde mohair wig. Her French wood and composition body is in good condition.
This adorable lady wears a vintage silk dress, cotton underclothes, an antique bonnet. Old oilcloth shoes.
From a smoke-free home and private collection. See pics for best description. Shipping can be combined for multiple purchases. WE SHIP INTERNATIONALLY. Please email for international rates or if you have any questions. (2992)
